Virunga Artisans: The Art of People and Gorillas Living in Harmony

The Art of People & Gorillas Living in Harmony







Survival of the 700 remaining mountain gorillas greatly depends on the well being of the people who live nearby in Rwanda, Uganda & DR Congo. By marketing this unique line of quality crafts, coffee and tea, we enable local artisans to make a living outside the parks, strengthen their communities and help preserve fragile watershed and gorilla habitat.
